We discuss a special case of the gauge theory to string theory correspondence where exact results are available. We show how the Witten-Reshetikhin-Turaev invariant in $SU(n)$ Chern-Simons theory on $S^3$ is related via conifold transition to the all genus generating function of the topological string amplitudes on a Calabi-Yau manifold.
